ESCAPING NORTH KOREA

Defiance and Hope in the World’s Most Repressive Country By Mike Kim
The first of its kind, this book provides a rare and unique inside look
into the hidden world of ordinary North Koreans. Mike Kim, who worked
with refugees on the Chinese border for four years, recounts their
experiences of enduring famine, sex-trafficking, and torture, as well as
the inspirational stories of those who overcame tremendous adversity to
escape the repressive regime of their homeland and make new lives.

In ESCAPING NORTH KOREA, One of the few Americans granted entry into the
secretive “Hermit Kingdom,” Kim came to know the isolated country and
its people intimately. His North Korean friends entrusted their secrets
to him as they revealed the government’s brainwashing tactics and
confessed their true thoughts about the repressive regime that so
rigidly controls their lives. Civilians and soldiers alike spoke of what
North Koreans think of Americans and war with America. Children
remembered the suffering they endured through the famine. Women and
girls recalled their horrific sex-trafficking experiences. Former
political prisoners shared their memories of beatings, torture, and
executions in the gulags.

With the permission of these courageous individuals, Kim now shares
their stories and recounts his dramatic experiences leading North
Koreans to asylum through the 6,000-mile modern-day underground railway
through Asia. His unflinching narrative exposes the truth about North
Korea, stripping away the last veils that still shroud this brutal
dictatorship.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Mike Kim is the founder of Crossing Borders, an NGO
providing aid to North Koreans. After helping refugees for the past four
years, he now travels and speaks widely to raise awareness of their
plight. Kim resides in Washington, DC, where he is a full-time MBA
student at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business.
